Hey all
I’m back and rejuvenated for a healthy new year! i just started the BBG (body by Glamour) diet and im really excited! hopefully i will get really skinny and look like i used to before i had my gorgeous little daughter. Hopefully eating all these fruits and veggies will do me well. We havent been eating a lot of those and we really need them. LOL.

So the makeup thing is back on im really excited about it. A new year and a new time to get better and work more! Looking forward to working with you and keep warm and snuggly in this freezing cold weather.

308TPG Pop Up shop 002 smallerThis morning I woke up with excited butterflies in my tummy. It was the Pop up Shop day!! which means i get to buy more makeup for less! Well of course coz I get nervous that everything will be gone before i get there i arrive bright and early at 11:30 (when it opens at mid-day). I met Michael and he’s really nice and friendly (thanks for making me feel comfortable). They had great products there and at amazing prices. It was held at the OCC studio which just opened at the end of October. I had a great time and saw some really nice people there. Michael went through my protfolio with me to share how I could make it better. He was brutally honest and I loved that because I need it in order to succeed in what I love doing most – Make up.

I Finally got the Stila Eyshadow Kitten which i have been lusting after for ages. I got a Stila Smudgepot in Purple from the barbie collection. I got Shadow shields which im really excited about, by-by to eyshadow fall down! Some plastic storage bags. Makeup remover, and a toner which i have wanted since the Makeup show NYC in May.

All in all it was a great experience and got some great stuff for my kit.

Thanks TPG u guys r great!!

Last night I went to a shoot in the Bronx With Boytoyrocks.com. It was in a basement and was all very dark and mysterious. The theme of the shoot was goth sexy! I wasnt sure how the shoot would be. One of the models didnt turn up but the other model was Sarah Hartshorne from ANTM!! which was great! She is a really sweet girl and we had a great time together.

The make up was fierce!! Black and Red which was a lot of fun to do. I helped accessorize sarah and we had a lot of fun working together!!

Pics coming soon!!!

_POC2155 resizedHad a great shoot in Manhattan on Friday. The girl i did makeup on was really pretty and had great great skin. We shot at the top of a building and the views were amazing if a little terrifying, I’m afraid of heights. We shot on this teeny tiny porch on the 20th floor! oh man i was wetting myself!! lol

I used the HD makeup foundation by MUFE on her face and I love it!! It is a great foundation and has great results, great coverage.

NYGARD 003 smallerWhat is the truth about makeup? Most women—even some little girls—wear it.

You’ve seen it all. You’ve seen the clear days, the blotchy days, the tanned days and the days that just look all wrong. Usually, it’s just a bit of blush, sometimes eyeliner, and then on occasion a full makeover. “Man!” You think to yourself. “Why is it so hard to stay clear and good looking?” So you apply your foundation and by the time you’ve put on eyeliner you wish you could just get back into bed and not meet anyone all day. One look in the mirror and you’re back to where you started. After all, who enjoys that pretty, made up face more than you? It’s the toil of woman.

The cosmetics industry makes billions of dollars annually. Fashion and Hollywood have set the standards for “beauty,” and most people agree with their taste. Women of all ages wear makeup! To most, it is important to be fashionable yet fashion is always changing. Funny thing about looking good, sometimes it’s looking like we want to look and others its looking how we think others would like us to look …

The beginning and the end of it is makeup gives us the confidence we might not have had was our face makeup free. I know that as a makeup artist when I do a persons face and they haven’t seen what i have been doing and then i show them, the look on their face when they are finished is priceless they look happy and there is a confidence there that wasn’t before. I have felt that before as well. I would sometimes wake up in a bad mood and then i would spend a good half an hour on my makeup and the end resulted in me feeling better because i had seen myself in a new light and i felt hot.

So in my humble opinion? Makeup is a very important feel good commodity in our daily lives!

MAC dazzleglass creme! M∙A∙C cult favourite Dazzleglass with a creamier, smoother, but no less shiny or dazzling effect. For those who are drawn to the luxe of cream lips, but still want the dazzling allure of its inspiration, this is it.

I saw this the other day in Macy’s and i tried it on it is beyond gorgeous and slides on really smooth. The shine on this is awesome and the little specks of glitter in this is for the brave and bold people out there who love to be different and fun. It is not a sticky lipgloss but a very wet and smooth one.

I love it and have used it every day since I got it!!

It comes in 9 different colors.

What fun that was!!! Working with beautiful women.

I love that they incorporated non Model Models who are breast cancer survivors. That is a great thing about NYGARD if you buy something from the store part of what you spend goes to Breast cancer research!

Lashes
One thing that i noticed while i was putting lashes on the girls is that the lashes that are not a full thick strip are much harder to put on. The corners don’t stick as well to the corner of the eye as well as the ones that have spaces in between!! If you see 101 has no space between the hairs but if you look at 113 there is so i prefer to use the 113 type! they stick better and are easier to appl
